Estes believes in giving back to its community and one way the company provides this type of support is through a partnership with Good News Ministries. This mission helps homeless men and is known as the “working man’s mission,” as everyone who is able must work. In recent years, Estes has helped to provide the mission with work.
“Traditionally these types of ministries are supported by private donations and churches. With the softened economy, we saw the opportunity to provide financial support to the ministry, and at the same time provide job skill training for the men to help them along the path to self-sufficiency,” said Ron Estes, Vice President Operations for Estes Design and Manufacturing. “The men do light assembly and build posts for our mailbox division, and we’ve been very pleased with the quality of their work. It’s been a great partnership.”
